Line locks/Parking Brakes
« on: July 11, 2014, 10:26:43 PM »
Can I use a  line lock as a parking brake? I would only use it when the engine is running for warm up on my steep driveway....And the occasional smokey burnout....Only on private property though  eyes

Didn't know if those solenoids start getting hot after long periods?
Thoughts?
Have a nice effin day  :)

Use a manual line lock . Forget the wiring.

X2 on using a manual.  The elc would be pulling a butt load of voltage.  Would not be as reliable either.

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Some people will bad mouth the manual locks. IMO ,they are just not smart enough to use them correctly.  ;) ;) Manual locks are nearly issue proof.

Manual lock something like this? Simple enough and easy on the wallet!

bingo. I'll be using similar with this torque converter Fortin -no park provision- so I'll need one no matter what.

You do understand that to release you push the release and then reapply the brakes harder than set or they do not release?  Just pushing the button will not do it. I think that is why some have issues with them. They just don't operate them correctly,IMO. I've never had problems with them on bigger trucks.

I don't have fear of doing it again. But I am aware of things that could prevent it.

or just add one or two of these.   i had one of those line locks and they did good on flat ground but push the pedal to hard and lock and i couldn't push it hard enough to release it. only happened twice out of quite a few use's and a cheap empi part back then but the only way i could get it to release was to break the line fitting. now a better quality part would've been better i am sure but these mechanical one's look pretty fool proof to me. they offer them in right and left too. i  don't see why you couldn't make a disc to bolt on behind you input sprocket to the box for this use. just a thought

Those little line locks they sell are very low quality. A regular ball valve works much better. Put in 2 for front rear separation. That way if you loose a line you can cut off that end and still have decent brakes if you are running a balance bar set-up.
